Wonderful Maker 

Wonderful Maker – Song of the Month: MARCH 2019 

Hello! I hope to find you listening to the March song, Wonderful Maker, with a knowing expectation that the Lord is for you and never against you; and that He knows you more than you will ever know yourself! 

I love that this song was birthed directly out of the Bible in Psalm 139. It was recorded at Dan Merrill’s studio, Studio 19 in Portland Maine with Dan, Dawn Torres and Lise Roseberry lending the backing vocals. Their performance unquestionably reveals my heart’s passion when I wrote it. And listening to it stirs me to want to know Jesus more. I pray that this happens for you as well. 

Psalm 139 is special to me, specifically verses 23 and 24. Only in Jesus’s world would an individual continue to want to know Him more despite that in that process there is no escaping how horrible they are. Who wants that? 

I want that. If you are reading this and don’t know Jesus ... keep reading! 

Asking Jesus to continue to search me and test me and lead me is scary. At times getting deeper with Him is extremely difficult, un-nerving, it can be lonely and depressing, most definitely NOT for the faint hearted. Yet on the other side of that, knowing He wove me in my mother’s womb, sees every move I make and that there is no where I can go to escape His love … well, that is exhilarating. Jesus is committed, In fact He is the ONLY one we can trust to never leave us. Once we received His gift of eternal life, we are His, there is no going back, there is nowhere to go, like the song says. 

What are you feeling after listening to this song? Comforted, convicted, confused? I encourage you to share your thoughts, if not here on this page, send me an email, or a text, let’s have a conversation about Jesus’s love.

 

WONDERFUL MAKER (Where Would I Go?)       by Lisa Gallant Seal

O Lord my God You have searched me

My God You know my heart.

You know where just where I end and where I start.

How precious Your thoughts to me? how vast the sum of them?

If I should count, they’d outnumber the sand!

 

Where would I go to avoid such things?

Where would I go if I took to my wings?

Wonderful Maker of mine where would I go?

 

Such knowledge is too wonderful, to high for me to reach.

Maker You know everything, when I flee, when I flee.

You wove me in my mother’s womb, the life I live my Grace has groomed

I’m fearfully and wonderfully made Wonderful Maker of mine!

 

Where would I go to avoid such things?

Where would I go if I took to my wings?

Wonderful Maker of mine where would I go?

 

Where would I go to avoid such things?

Where would I go if I took to my wings?

Wonderful Maker of mine where would I go?

 

Search me O God, try me thoughts, see me my way, lead me Everlasting!

Search me O God, try me thoughts, see me my way, lead me Everlasting!

 

Where would I go to avoid such things?

Where would I go if I took to my wings?

Wonderful Maker of mine where would I go?

NEW HORIZON ~ LGS BAND ~ Farewell John Lafollette 

Talk about the Lord "shaking the blanket"! The changes keep on coming. In January I resigned from a six year "interim" worship leader position at The First Baptist Church of Portland. In February I found an amazing gem of a church just minutes from my home. My husband and best friend both agree it is a great little church. Now in March, I am gearing “down" as the LGS Band says good bye to my long-time music partner and lead guitar player John Lafollette. John and his wife Jamie and son Adam will be moving to El Paso Texas in a few short weeks! As I say good bye to John there is an excitement that rises up in my heart because I know that the Lord has something else for me to do … but all I hear right now is “rest”. 

  

I am very excited for John because Texas is his home, he and his wife Jamie are both from Texas and they started their lives together there. I selfishly think that John came to Maine many years ago to play with my band ... ha ha ha. Seriously though, the minute John and I heard each other's music (approximately ten years ago) we knew we would be teaming up at some point and that we did. 

  

I cried like a baby when I realized John was leaving Maine, and it was a sweet moment with the Lord, sweet tears of gratefulness and sadness all in one. God has provided me with such talented and committed musicians over the years, and still leaves me with an amazing rhythm section with Charles Mugabe and Eric Pelchat. It is how I started in the early nineties, a trio and the songs were the focus, not so much the “rock and roll” music. John, as always, calms my spirit in the fray saying that he finds my music most powerful in the lesser of things, that the rock sound can take away from the focus … the songs. I agree and know what he is talking about and oh man, here I go again … crying. 

  

I sure am going to miss the best guitar player I have ever heard, not to mention a man after God, yay. I love you John Lafollette and after Jamie … I am your biggest fan.
